Cat House Plans

Cat house plans for the do-it-yourself crowd are available from a few sources. If you want to have your cat house built, or build it yourself, you can start with these ideas and instructions.

Surprisingly, I've been having a hard time finding plans, or even resources that list links, at least decent ones.

Unfortunately, the searches I've done have produced some pretty lousy results, and I'd really like to see a lot more plans out there.

In any case, I figured if I couldn't find many, then others might be having the same problem, so I thought I'd collect some resources for you and list them here.

Free online diagrams
Instructions for building a "dog house for cats." There's also a plan for a bird feeder, so you can have another fun project to work on as well as give your cats some entertainment.

A unique design in cat houses
This unique model is sort of castle-like or mansion-like, depending upon your viewpoint.

Plans for sale
Originally designed and intended as police dog houses, you can order these plans for $29.99 US.

The DIY garage kitty house
Miss Minnie needed a warm place to stay, and while I don't see any detailed plans or instructions, the do-it-yourselfer could build a house like this one.

A Modern looking design
There are no plans, but some nice pictures of an outdoor cat house with a modern design by Leo Kempf. There's a plexi-glass window for excellent bird watching.

Build your own cat house video
I haven't seen this video, but the claim is that this video will show you how to build the house, with blueprints and all.

Cat Tree Plans

Giving your cat extra kitty pleasures would be to build an indoor cat sanctuary, leading to an outdoor enclosure with a cat house, and some cat trees and kitty condos. Below are some cat tree plans to go along with your cat house.
